Kim (Bernard) Jacky '99 and Chris Jacky '99

Our love story started on the soccer field where Chris and I both played soccer for the Boxers.

The men’s and women’s team traveled together, practiced at the same facilities and hung out with one another during social events, so it was only a matter of time before we started talking.

During one party, with some liquid courage, Chris finally got the nerve to talk to me one on one. He pulled me into the bathroom to show me the flowers in his eyes, it was cute, but I wasn’t that impressed.

However later that night we ended up sitting in the back seat of a car together during a Taco Bell run. We talked and laughed and got to know one another. He asked to take me to lunch the next day and I agreed. The next day he took me to Phil’s for a sandwich and after that date I knew that he was the perfect man for me. We ended spending all our free time together, lying in a hammock under the oak trees, sitting in our dorm rooms, or walking around Trombley Square.

We have now been together for eight years, married for five. We have one daughter Ella, who is two-years-old and another baby on the way. Although our time at Pacific University was short, we reminisce about our experiences there quite often. We hope to make it back to visit soon.
